See what trusted physicians have to say about Endoscopic Spine Academy after completing the courses.
Cervical facet pain is a common problem encountered by physicians who treat spinal pain. Endoscopic cervical facet debridement is an intriguing method to treat facet pain by directly addressing the injured or pain generating anatomy. Potential targets for endoscopic treatment are the posterior joint capsule, the posterior synovium and hypertrophied joint margins.
Dr. Mork’s course addresses all aspects of the procedure from A to Z. While many courses focus on patient selection and technical procedure aspects, Dr. Mork’s course covers important topics not usually seen elsewhere like scheduling and consent, draping and OR disposables, dictation and billing. The meat and potatoes of the course though is the intraoperative presentation. This is well covered and the endoscopic portion of the procedure plays well to an educational medium that uses video.
There is a lack of comprehensive endoscopic learning materials. Dr. Mork’s Endoscopic Spine Academy fills a badly needed void in standardizing endoscopic spine surgery education and will nicely complement vendor and professional society sponsored courses.
I have been performing endoscopic spine procedures for 7 years and have attended a multitude of training workshops and conferences. The cervical facet course taught by Dr. Mork was one of the best educational experiences I have had in the field of spinal endoscopy. Nothing is left out of this training series, as Dr. Mork takes you from diagnosis, to selective injection, to the procedure, and finishes with the specifics of documentation and coding. This is truly a complete curriculum for cervical facet treatment with the endoscope, and I have put his technique into effect immediately in my practice. I leave most courses with inspiration and hope regarding a new technique, but I finished his course with confidence and a complete knowledge of the procedure including tips on complication avoidance. Thanks to the online aspect of his course, I can continually check back to watch the procedure videos as well as refresh my memory on the specifics of documentation, coding, and anatomy. This is essential since there is often a delay between a training course and the application of the technique, which can be a significant barrier to performing a new procedure. Prior to my first case I reviewed the anatomical and procedural videos and found a renewed sense of confidence that allowed me to perform a safe and effective endoscopic intervention.
In summary, this course is essential for anyone that has basic endoscopic experience with the spine and is looking to expand their practice into the cervical area. I cannot stress enough how impressed I was with the straightforward and comprehensive manner in which this course was laid out. I look forward eagerly to continued training by Dr. Mork through his online endoscopic academy!
